Applying to become a CITB Centre

Note: The process of applying to become a CITB Centre has changed. You will need to submit an application to become a CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO) instead.

Before you submit your application, make sure that you are able to meet all the requirements of becoming a CITB Approved Training Organisation.

You will also need to make sure you can meet the requirements for each CITB product that you are planning to offer.

Once you are confident you will be able to meet the requirements, please complete the CITB ATO application form.

We will be in touch within 10 working days of receiving your completed form.

Important - Outcome of the ITC review

After the review of CITB’s current testing estate, it has been found that CITB have sufficient test centres throughout the UK to meet with the demand required by industry. Therefore, CITB will not be taking on any applications to become an ITC presently. If further test centres for the testing suite are required, this will be done in conjunction with industry. Please contact if you have any further questions.
